The Subaru Impreza that arrived in 2016 is surprisingly large by small car standards. Rear seat room, in particular, is very forthcoming, which is a plus for families or those who want to ferry their friends around.
The 2016 Impreza is also the first one not to be offered with a manual gearbox. Instead a CVT (continuously variable transmission) auto is standard and – in true Subaru form – it drives all four wheels.
With a focus on safety Subaru also ensures its cars not only perform well protecting their occupants in a crash but also work to avoid them in the first place. The EyeSight system uses dual forward-facing cameras to spot obstacles and other vehicles and potentially apply the brakes.
All models come with a 2.0-litre horizontally-opposed engine, hence the 2.0i badge on the back.
Even the basic model – simply called 2.0i – comes loaded with gear as part of Subaru's positioning as a more premium mainstream brand.
If you get the 2.0i-L or 2.0i-S there’s progressively more equipment and nicer finishes.
The 2.0i Premium comes with a generous spread of gear, as the name suggests.
And you can choose between hatchback and sedan body styles.
